As a network committed to transforming the progressive pipeline, we want to build programs that help us systematically provide professional connections and opportunities for students as they transition into the professional world. And as Roosevelters with career experience and a professional network of their own, alumni are the key to making this happen. That’s why we have piloted several mentorship programs that aim to connect alumni to students around either professional development or policy support.
Our mentorship programs fall under two categories: city-based mentorship or program-based mentorship like the Forge Fellowship. City-based mentorship is organized through alumni associations with the goal of connecting local alumni and students around professional development or policy projects. Program-based mentorships are, generally, remote opportunities that connect alumni and students around program-based goals and assist students with specific asks. Alumni participate in mentorship programs in two capacities: either as mentors or as liaisons. Liaisons work with mentors, mentees, and national staff on managing the program, including troubleshooting, communicating opportunities, and checking in with both mentors and mentees.
